Road Trip

I watched this mainly because it was on. My expectations were super-low. The story was a straightforward "comedy of errors adventure", but it also had some surprisingly heartwarming character moments. The thing that elevates it the most are the imaginative narrative elements it uses -- dreams masquerading as reality, and an eccentric Tom Green character serving as the narrator, creating an outer layer of comedy that simultaneously allows for suspension of disbelief at what happens in the story, and making it impossible for the story to take itself too seriously.
